Spinach Pie and Books

Tonight's supper was spinach pie with an olive oil crust that I had ready to bake in the freezer. I used the crust recipe from the Vegetarian Times and the filling recipe from the revised Moosewood Cookbook. It was quite good, but I hope the leftovers hold up since this was a large pie and it is rich. A small piece and salad filled me up. Mike made himself a sardine sandwich, but he forgot to take a picture of it. Simple recipe though--slice a whole wheat roll, open up a can of sardines and drain the olive oil before plopping on the roll. Top with a slice of cheese. Maybe someday I'll try one.
I finished The Postmistress by Sarah Blake. Well, sort of finished as I did a whole lot of skimming. It just seemed to wander so much I found it really hard to get into. I have now started Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls. I'm finding it fascinating, can hardly put it down--hence the supper of sandwiches or freezer fare.


  1. Wow, that spinach pie looks good.

    I read Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls, and also her other book about a crystal palace or something like that. I also found both books very interesting and that's not at all the type of books I enjoy. My sister-in-law kept insisting I read them until I finally gave in. I would highly recommend both books.

  2. Hi Olga, I read Jeannette Walls first book and loved it, in spite of how horrific some parts were. She managed to tell her story with lots of humor and forgiveness. My daughter and I still laugh about some parts of it.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
